Grant Park ‘Art on the Farm’ Tours

From the beginning of July through August 8th, our teen ambassadors in collaboration with After School Matters, offer free tours of our potager urban farm in Grant Park. This farm is a demonstration plot displaying how to grow a variety of crops in a beautiful and sustainable manner.

The farm is located on the NW corner of Congress Parkway and Columbus Boulevard, kitty-corner to Buckingham Fountain.

Tours are offered at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday through August 8, 2019.  NOTE: we will not offer tours due to Lollapalooza from July 31st – August 4th.
